Thanksgiving tablescape 10 tips for creating a unique Thanksgiving tablescape- the Style Sisters

 I created a unique Thanksgiving tablescape using an uncommon color palette of blue and orange and I used some old book pages.
I adore these leaf plates purchased from Walmart years ago...they haven't carried anything like it since.

TIP 1- You don't need to match all your stuff..I used a mix of different napkin rings..I love these pale yellow ones from pier
TIP 2- Add some old book pages underneath dinner plates to add texture and create a paper Charger
TIP 3- For a little bling I used these orange and yellow gold bauble napkin rings also from pier 1
TIP 4- Use old books that are folded to create unique shapes thought your centerpiece 
TIP 5- Use mini chalkboards by painting cardboard with chalk paint and attaching them to painted silver clothes pins that allow  to write sweet messages to your family.
TIP 6- Use unique details like a rusty metal letter cut out for place card setting
Tip 7- Add soft layers I used some of these DIY little velvet Punkins tutorial HERE
Tip 8- Use more old book pages scattered throughout the center of the table used as a table worries about spills!
Tip 9- Make my DIY paper pinwheel place card holders to Set place card holders on. You can purchase the wire pumpkin place card holders here  1
Tip 10- Have fun and enjoy creating something unique and fun for your Thanksgiving table!

Another cool folded old book...this is a great idea for torn or ruined books.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone I hope this inspires you to use unique items for your table this year :)
